Looking for Alaska is due to be released as a film next year.
Everything was Alaska and nothing hurt.
And then everything was Alaska and EVERYTHING hurt.
“What is an “instant” death anyway? How long is an instant? Is it one second? Ten? The pain of those seconds must have been awful as her heart burst and her lungs collapsed and there was no air and no blood to her brain and only raw panic. What the hell is instant? Nothing is instant. Instant rice takes five minutes, instant pudding an hour. I doubt that an instant of blinding pain feels particularly instantaneous.” —John Green, Looking for Alaska (via latinproverb)
That's the mystery, isn't it? Is the labyrinth living or dying? Which is he trying to escape—the world or the end of it?
“Thomas Edison’s last words were: ‘It’s very beautiful over there.’ I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.” —
“The labyrinth blows, but I choose it.” —John Green, Looking For Alaska (via sandyohstar)
